 Oh no, not Monty again! (Posted on 2015-06-17)

The Monty Hall problem is a well known brain teaser. Here is a variant.

You're on a game show, and you're given the choice of three boxes. Two boxes each contain \$1000; the third contains \$4000.

You pick one box and the host picks another. The host removes this box, which contains \$1000, and adds \$1000 to your box. He then offers you the choice to switch to the remaining box.

Do you switch, or stick with your original box?
